how the hell does that work?
seems like it works just like all the other energy drinks, probably 50-100 cal's per serving lol
The garbage in coke helpful?, not bloody likely, stay away from the stuff
I'll believe it when I see it.
Diet coke has no calories and the caffiene increases metabolism, so maybe they can just put it in a new can (and rip off cricket cola by adding some green tea). Old product, new hype.
I've been drinking Caffiene Free Diet Coke for so long now, that i cant even drink the regular stuff anymore. I cant say im any worse for the wear for drinking it. I drink at the most 2 cans a day.

'calorie BURNING soda' uhuhuhh. (<--is that how you spell out a cringe sound)
Sounds like scary stuff. Next thing you know the Tabacco companies will make EPO laced Cigs.
Punctuality is the thief of time.
Sounds like it will be like a liquid diet pill, kinda like a low grade speed. Humph.

I'll probably try it if it comes out.
If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
I like the lime diet coke. Do they have caffeine free lime diet coke?

Friends don't let friends use brifters.
Grasp can firmly. Jump up and down vigorously for 10 minutes. Open can. There you just burned 50 calories.

It is just green tea that has been processed and carbonized and whatnot and put into a bottle with a Coke logo on it. Green tea has been known for years upon years to increase your metabolism and therefore burn calories.
Maybe they add ephedra.

they're just cashing in on the fact that people will take any "easy" way to lose weight....
Failure is not falling down, it is staying down.
What a way to make $$$ . . . Americans even buy hi-priced bottled water. Just open up the tap . . . or pump that pump handle!

The stuff probably is pretty good for you. Well at least normal green tea that I make at home is. But of course when you add in how much they will thin out and artificially flavor the drink then it is hard to say how healthy it will be. But, everything I have read about hot and fresh brewed looseleaf green tea has said its about the healthiest thing that one could drink.
I never really treated green tea as a weight loss product, but I like tea and green tea made a nice switch from my normal iced tea while still being low-or-no calories.
However. . . . . last time we drove to Chicago to see the in-laws when I was still on the low-carb diet, I picked up a bottle of "Green Tea" at a gas station. I did not read the ingredients or calorie list on the back, I just checked to make sure it wasn't labeled "sweetened" or anything like that--no goofy flavoring, no lemon, no sweeteners, so it must be pretty healthy stuff, right?
WRONG! Drinking that stuff was like drinking sticks of Wrigley's speamint gum in liquid form. It was FULL of sugar and artificial mint flavoring to the point that the bottle of "green tea" I'd picked up not only didn't really taste like tea at all and had almost 400 calories. I forget the carbs, but they were many and ill-tempered.
You'd think even if they didn't care if a dieter had his day thrown off their sugar water, they'd at least want to advertise the fact that they went to all that trouble to add the wonderful minty flavor and all, but nope. There was absolutely nothing on the label about it except the required nutrition breakdown on the back and a small-print ingredient list.
Before, I usually read those; now I do it without fail.
